Non-involvement with risky loans pays off for Wide Bay

Staff Reporter 1 minute read

Wide Bay Australia yesterday reported an after tax profit of $8.23 million for the six months ending 31 December 2007.

The result represented an increase from $8.06 million registered during the corresponding period in 2006 and was in line with the mutual’s forecasts and expectations.

According to Wide Bay, lending increased by 17.7 per cent to $266 million for the six-month period.

It said demand for loans had been steady and that demand has continued into 2008.

Wide Bay also said its policy for non-involvement with higher risk low doc sub-prime loans and reverse mortgages had proven to be a correct decision by its directors.

“Almost all of the [Wide Bay] loan book carries full mortgage insurance,” the mutual said.

“The focus for the next few months will be to continue the strong lending program and growth of the loan book.”
